lean pockets culinary creations giveway

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


when i was approached by lean pockets to host a "wrapped in goodness" party to help spread the word about their new culinary creations lean pockets that involved eating, drinking and wearing snuggies i just couldn't say no.

plus it gave me an opportunity to have some of my friends over to see my new place...

...even though my kitchen isn't redone yet - so no judging me.


the theme of the party was wrapped in goodness, so in addition to the culinary creations lean pockets i also served white chicken chili, warm artichoke dip, meats and cheeses, hot buttered cider with spiced rum, veggies for good measure, and cookies including chai-spiced snickerdoodles and peppermint chocolate crinkle cookies.


but the real stars were the lean pockets, especially the
5 new culinary creations varieties:
- chipotle chicken

- chipotle bacon dijon

- spinach artichoke chicken

- garlic chicken white pizza

- grilled chicken mushroom and spinach


these new chef inspired creations are made of whole grain crusts with 8 grams of fat or less, and let me tell you something - you put these bad boys in the oven instead of the microwave and they are even better tasting.


the klutz and MOB posing with their new favorite culinary creations

some of the wrapped in goodness guests hanging out in my kitchen

foxxy, holler, doyle, muffin, beaver and MOB are having deep discussions about lean pockets

andy is obviously jealous about how good mverdova looks in his snuggie

MOB is the happiest girl alive with her snuggie and lean pocket coupon

beaver, her electric blue phone, and lzone nonchalantly discussing lean pockets

is it just me or does seanski look like he's trying to kill muffin with a lean pocket?

it was a great evening full of tasty food and laughing till we cried at beaver's antics and filming for
the flats.

so do you want to try the new culinary creations lean pockets for yourself?
how about enjoying them for A WHOLE YEAR?

i'm giving away a year's supply of lean pockets!! i.e. 183 coupons for a free box of lean pockets, kids.

  1. I'd say the spinach artichoke chicken. I usually keep a box on hand for an emergency meal since it's <300 calories.

  2. I'm boring. I like the Pepperoni Pizza ones.

  3. I am also going to be boring. When I think pockets, I think Ham and Cheese. Period. End of story. Bubbling, contained melted cheese belongs with ham.

  4. the quesadilla lean pockets are my favorite, but i also have to agree with craig because as much as ham sort of grosses me out, the gooey cheddar cheese and salty ham inside a flaky crust is enough to make me salivate like pavlov's dog at the sound of the microwave ding.

    hmm, i should be a spokesperson for lean pockets. new calling!

  5. I love the Spinach Artichoke Chicken in the Whole Grain....but I too always think of Ham & Cheese when i think Lean Pockets! LOL I also just became a fan on Facebook. :)

  6. I'm a fan of all of the Mexican style pockets!

  8. OMG, garlic chicken white pizza for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ohhhh, it is a toss up between Ham and Cheese and the Turkey, Broccol, Cheese. I think Ham and Cheese slightly edges out the Turkey though. Both of which, I might add, are in my freezer as we speak.

    Also became a fan on FB. I don't think Lean Pockets knows how much I love them. I literally ate one every day for lunch while I was pregnant...no joke.

  14. My favorite is the grilled chicken mushroom and spinach. Love, love all of the ingredients...the standards are good too, but my favorite just sounds healthy! Loved reading and seeing the pics...been waiting to hear all about your evening.

  15. Sausage, egg, and cheese. Because, let's face it, I'm not going to put more effort into breakfast than microwaving something.

    Also, on an unrelated Snuggie note, I received the "Snuggie Sutra" as a Christmas present. Hilarious! Probably not appropriate for a Snuggie party, but you never know...

    ReplyDelete
  18. I actually love lean pockets. And I'm kind of coming around on the snuggie, too.

    That said, I think my favorites are the broccoli and cheese ones. Cheese is really just an all around winner.

  40. My favorite is the spinach and chicken! Sounds really fun, but my favorite news anchor should have covered the story about this! http://lynnaluvers.com

  41. Mock me if you must - but microwavable food requires very little concentration and suits my short attention span. Making it slightly more-nutritious/less-junk-food is a bonus. Sign me up.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I haven't tried the new ones but will mow down a pepperoni pizza one after any night out and not feel bad about it in the least!

    ReplyDelete
  43. My favorite lean pocket variety is the Italian Style Meatballs.

  71. I love the new chipotle chicken, but my fave is still ham & cheese. Simple, warm goodness. It is also the first food that brought my 14-year-old cat and new dog together... a bite for me, then a (cooled down) piece of ham for each of them, perched on either side of me. It was a significant milestone in our house!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Any of the Pretzel Bread Lean Pockets rock! ...also Lean Pockets snuggies! Hell yess!!
